The	purpose	of	our	Note	booking	format	is	to	save	our	customers
money.		Not	only	do	you	get	our	unit	studies	at	a	reasonable	cost	as	a
downloadable	E	book,	you	don’t	have	to	waste	money	on	ink	printing	out
Just	allow	your	student	to	read	the	PDF	version	of	the	unit	study	on
the	computer	and	write	their	answers	in	a	notebook	set	up	just	for	this
Unit.		You	can	always	print	them	out	if	you	like	as	well.
You	may	need	craft	materials,	poster	board	and	other	items	to
complete	some	of	the	projects.
Each	book	is	divided	into	two	lessons.		Each	lesson	covers	two	chapters.
You	may	want	to	spend	several	days	on	each	lesson.
For	each	lesson	there	is:
Daily	Journaling	about	the	adventure
Who,	what,	where,	when,	why	and	how	questions.
True	and	False	questions.
Vocabulary	words	to	write	the	definition,	antonym,	synonym	for.
A	Main	Idea,	A	Key	Event,	Prediction,	Compare	and	Contrast,	Fact	and

will	be	used	in	a	sequence	of	events	activity.
Following	the	chapter	studies	there	are	other	activities.	You	can	do	all	of
them	or	pick	and	choose	those	you	like:	There	are	20	in	each	section	so
you	could	even	have	different	students	do	different	projects.
